    No shit. That's hardly even drunk. It's sure not "Running Around Naked" drunk.

    For me, .11 is singing-karaoke drunk. I'm not carrying-a-nuclear-bomb-naked drunk until I'm well up in the .2's.

    There's the chance that he didn't get to the jail until hours after his last drink, allowing his blood alcohol level to drop. In rural areas like where I live, just the drive to jail can take hours... then again I'm assuming Iowa City has a jail.

    BAC only drops .015 per hour, so even if it was 2 hours before he got processes his BAC wouldn't have been obnoxiously high.

    honest question..... when you guys were first given those handheld breathalyzers, how often did they come out at parties with your colleagues? How long until it became the hack thing to do where now you guys make fun of the rookie that mentioned grabbing it at a party.

    LOL. I don't think it's ever seen as hack. I've seen it done at a few parties for a goof. What many don't realize is those handhelds aren't made to go from person to person over and over. Also, you're supposed to wait at least 15-20 minutes after someone last drank alcohol or else it spikes the reading with residual mouth alcohol. The RMA also damages handheld units.


    And now you know.

    yeah, always figured it was for goof purposes. I know the RMA could affect the results. didn't realize it also damages the units.

    Ive heard some newer ones are better at guarding against it, but in the end the datamaster or intoxilizer back at the PD is the more true reading.

    oh without a doubt. I assume that's why they are not admissible in court. I had one read pretty high on me (like 3X the limit) and the nice officer asked me when i last had a sip of beer, when I told him 5 minutes, he waited a bit longer before running it again. Much lower, but still above the limit. He gave me a ride home. Lucky night for me!!!!

    Yeah, I remember some kids had an off brand one at the bar one night and they were all like "mines higher than yours dude! You drink like girl". I burst their bubble and informed them "Your's is higher cause you still have half an ounce of vodka in your mouth from that shot 30 seconds ago." We actually had some fun with it. Had them all stop for 10 minutes (was like pulling teeth) then rinse and drink a big glass of water. Their readings were all substantially lower. I told them they all drink like girls before I left. LOL Silly frat boys.
